A console lovers beginners guide to pc gaming

Before I started working on WePC, my PC games were limited to Civilization 5 and it took me countless hours to destroy my Sims. And, when I had enough time to adjust to it, I spent time improving my character in World of Warcraft. This mainly depends on the situation. I played games on a worn-out laptop, so I didn't choose to play bigger games, or I risked everything over-running and exploding in front of me. So it soon became clear that you needed a beginner's guide to PC gaming.

The great team here welcomed me, showed me how to build a gaming PC, and laughed at my first bad attempt at playing CS: GO. Little by little, by accessing all the wonderful settings in the WePC office and our extensive Steam library, I started to become a PC game converter. This isn't to say that my PS4 and Nintendo Switch haven't had some serious uses yet, but I've started to see the grass turn greener in PC games.

So this is my guide for people like me. Those who grew up with game consoles but want to try entering the world of PC gaming. A beginner's guide to PC gaming, a shifting guide for console lovers, and a general "how-to" for people who don't know where to start.

First, you need to use a real gaming PC. Now, it's as easy as getting the latest console, because there are so many great pre-made gaming PCs out there. However, by pre-building it, you will end up paying more than if you built it yourself.

Believe me, I know the idea of building a gaming PC from scratch is absolutely terrifying, but I promise you it's easier than you think. There are some great guides that will show you step by step how to do it (can I recommend ours below?), but it is best to have someone present who knows what they are doing. Chances are, if you are a big player, you might have at least one friend who has been nagging you about how much PC games are better than console games, so grab them and let them help you.

Although you want to build the most powerful system in the world, if you want to enjoy great games without breaking the bank, you may want to consider a mid-range system. Check out our $600 and $700 PC versions that we update every day, they are a great choice for your first PC.

But don't forget that you also need a lot of peripheral equipment to match your tower. So at least add some cash to your monitor, keyboard, and mouse budget (although gaming chairs and headphones are definitely recommended). Overall, for less than $ 1,000, you can have a perfect gaming setup that can be easily used for a few years. Plus, when the time is right, upgrading a PC is much easier than upgrading a host!

Winner: Both. While PCs will be more powerful, customizable, and upgradeable, not everyone has the skills or funds to build their own.

In terms of graphics and hardware capabilities, PCs are almost always more impressive than consoles. The internal hardware performance of a gaming PC far exceeds its console counterparts, especially in the overclocking range.

If you don’t know what overclocking is, or how to proceed, we have some guidelines to help you:

However, the short version is: overclocking can make your components exceed their usual performance. Not all components can do this, but if you invest in a component that can do this, you can improve the functionality of your PC and enjoy better games.

Winner: PC

There is no doubt that if you like better game graphics, then you should choose a gaming PC.

As long as the launch of platform-exclusive games is all the rage, someone will miss it. However, with more than 30,000 games available (excluding DLC or software), it is difficult to argue with the Steam gaming giant. From the latest AAA games to low-key indie games, there is definitely something for everyone. In any case, you don't even need to give up your favorite console game. PC gamers can also play big-name games like "Death Stranding", "Cyberpunk 2077" and "Halo 3" (finally).

Compared to the Xbox or Playstation store, you are also more likely to find great value game deals on Steam. So, you will be able to get all these great games at a lower price.

Winner: PC (mainly)

Cheaper games, larger library-it's easy to understand why the PC will win. However, missing the console exclusive games such as "The Last of Us Part II", "Tsuma Soul" and even "Animal Crossing" means that the console scores half a point here.

As a console game player, the idea of trying to play games with a keyboard and mouse at first was overwhelming. I am an experienced controller user. If there is no controller, how can I do anything worthwhile? Although many members of the PC teacher profession will like to explain the advantages of keyboards and mice, you don't actually have to switch.

has many controllers that can be used for PC games (if needed, you can also use your existing PS4 controller). And depending on the game you're playing, the controller is still easier to use than the traditional keyboard and mouse setup (sorry, not sorry).

Winner: PC

has it all

Suppose you manage the PC games to reach the console in most categories. And, I trusted me, as a lover of the console, that prayer was difficult to write. But you need to deliver it to your PC Master Lace, do you know yours? As soon as I was throwing my console at Scrap Heap, she throws a PC for her a year's game session, while my PS4 belongs to Netflix's obligation, I admit it.

WEPC, what did you do for me?
